Playing a musical instrument provides great benefits including creative expression, communication, healing & peace. Just 30 minutes a day is enough to create a
dramatic improvement in mood & long term happiness.
Many service men & women suffer physical & emotional injuries or the effects of
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) leading to problems such as
broken families, drug addiction, depression, homelessness and suicide.
Music for Veterans offers a life-long method of attaining peace through
playing a musical instrument. This non-traditional approach is an effective,
easy, and fun method of addressing emotional issues.
Many Vets are reluctant to seek treatment because they worry about
the “stigma” of PTSD following them throughout their lives, making
it difficult to find a job and provide for their families.
Veterans freely participate in the Music for Veterans because it's totally
confidential and no records are kept on their participation in our program.
Latest statistics from US Census Bureau, Office of the Deputy Adjutant General
for Veterans Affairs state that 6% of soldiers returning from war commit suicide.
